The four breeds of dog currently regarded by U. S. dealers as “most fashionable” are all terriers: Scottish, Cairn, Sealyham, wire-haired fox. Most of the best-bred Scotties in the U. S. last fortnight foregathered on a terrace of Mr. & Mrs. Edward F. Button’s Long Island estate and permitted Dr. Clarence Cook Little, onetime president of the University of Michigan, now managing director of the American Society for the Control of Cancer, to compare their little black perfections in the Specialty Show of the Scottish Terrier Club, No. 1 event of the U. S. Scotty season. While the owners sipped tea and talked dog-shop, Dr. Little chose Watchman of Monagh Lea as No. 1 U. S. Scotty. This dog’s value: $3,000. His prize: $15 and a silver cup. World’s best Scotty is Heather Necessity, best-of-breed at London’s last Crystal palace show.
